DREARY SPY FILM WITH GREAT ACTORS!
11 March 2003 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Robert Vaughn, Elke Sommer, Felicia Farr, Edward Asner and Boris Karloff tried to make this film a success with their great acting abilities. However, it turns into a dreary spy farce about an American diplomat who shocks the world when he blows up the international peace conference in Venice, killing all the delegates, including himself. The pacing of the film is tedious and very boring. Avoid seeing this film. As usual, Boris Karloff gave a great performance at an elderly age.
